Energy Metabolism : Methods in Isolated Smooth Muscle and Methods at Cellular and Subcellular Levels

In this chapter we propose to describe techniques for studying biochemical reactions which provide energy for performance of work by the smooth muscle cell. These of course are merely the chemical components of chemomechanical processes operative during smooth muscle contraction. The latter, as Mommaerts (1969) has pointed out in the case of muscle, are a special and particularly favorable example of bioenergetics.
